Google AdSense Ads PricingI'll be offline in the upcoming weeks due to religious holidays, so I am taking some polls and I will post the results while I am offline.

I wanted to know, historically, looking back at the years, are you earning more from Google AdSense this year versus the past years or less or the same?

Of course, many publishers were hit hard by Penguin and Panda but that should be factored in.

In short, are you earning more or less or the same this year as previous years?

Take my poll below and have your friends take the poll:

A WebmasterWorld thread has a very interesting post by martinibuster on why you might be earning less. I'll bullet point them here but go ahead and read the details at the forum:

1. AdSense doesn't siphon off ad dollars from the AdWords program

2. AdSense is good for Google because it's bad for affiliate programs

3. AdSense is good for Google because it is bad for competing search engines

4. Data, data, data... and more data (about Google collecting data)

My earnings are up during the past few months, but it's also relevant to increased traffic.

my earning going down, more traffic - but less and less clicks. reason is easy - adsense everywhere and google show not correct ads lot of time.

My earnings have recently dropped due to less clicks, but I also noticed the clicks that I do get have been devalued greatly as well. That could be another issue though. Gotta love Google!

Same here visits up, clicks down. I wonder how long would it take for someone to take AdSense's place... I'm already working with CPX and MediaHub as advertisers.
